During last night’s halftime show for the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks vs. Denver Nuggets game, Charles Barkley revealed two-time WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair would be undergoing surgery today (Fri. March 15, 2019). Barkley offered well wishes to his friend Flair before his operation, which was followed by some “Whoos!” from the crowd.
The nature of Flair’s situation remains unknown, however. It’s unclear why exactly Flair is undergoing surgery today, or if it’s related to his 2017 health scare. The 16-time World Champion had a significant piece of his bowel removed after an intestinal blockage.
Flair was hospitalized for over a month after the surgery. There was a point where doctors gave him a slim chance at survival. However, Flair returned to full health several weeks later. He also had an external pacemaker inserted to help his heart beat normally.
